Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Dopey finds a place in the middle of the marching order, next to someone with a torch if possible.

The hobbet recovers the goblin ledger from his pack, and will do his best to map the tunnels as the party travels.
Should constitution bonuses be added to HD in the stat line?

Just don't panic because your life is in the hands of someone named Dopey

That is an interesting question. I don't think con adjustment to hp is intended to impact a figure's HD stat, because this impacts the figure's fighting capability in normal combat. From this perspective, con adj probably shouldn't be added to HD. On the other hand, it will be convenient to have any hp adj handy when determining hp. From this perspective, con adj probably should be added to the HD stat.

Perhaps the compromise solution would be to append any con adj to hp as a separate plus at the end of your HD stat? I.e., a veteran has 1+2 HD; if he also has a +1 hp adjustment due to con, his HD stat could become: 1+2+1. Does that work, or is it too confusing?

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

I am fine with the marching order and I think adding CON bonuses to the stat line is getting too confusing.

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Hit points are rolled so seldomly and calculating fighting HD so frequently that it seems just listing the HD is the prudent course of action. Con bonuses can be determined easily enough when it comes time to reroll HP.

Zax chews momentarily on his moustache, then proceeds into the chamber

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

Dopey the Hobbet must have been overlooked (so easy to do!), but he's right there behind The Herald, with quill and scroll in hand.
Marching order is now:

Zax the Gnome,
Leudigar,
The Herald
Dopey the Hobbet
Fried
Akbar
Karl

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

The Herald turns to Dopey.

Dopey, if we see any beastmen, you take this torch from me right away, got it?

Leudigar follows the gnome into the room, sword and dagger drawn.

Re: (082) The Darkness Below

"Oi, Don't forget me!" grumbles Zem the Dwarf, pushing ahead of Dopey in the marching order just as Zax strides into the room ahead...
